SO YOU CAN SAY THE SAME ABOUT DRAKE AS WELL
On the contrary, you can easily say it about him because we know his past from a sh*t load of home made videos of him with his boys, interviews from when he was on tv shows, and just random stuff like that and you see that he's a little light in the wrist. He was always just a good guy having fun in ymca's and sleep overs and sh*t like that. You can tell in the way he sings and the subject matters that he is more comfortable being that guy too. He was never a tough guy until now that he's on ymcmb and feels like he needs to fit in so now he's rapping about k!lling people and what not. Usually people that talk like that aren't about that life and people about that life dont talk about it. I like Drake but not a big fan of Take Care for that very reason, its not him, its a role that he is portraying PROBABLY from hanging out with Rick Ross to much. Its like he got all this money and it changed him to a stuck up fake prick that all he does is shrug everything off because he got money lol Now with Common, its reverse, he is playing the role of being a teddy bear lmfao Mostly tho its because he's grown, mature and trying to put behind the ignorance just like Ice Cube and Rev Run for example. Now with all that said, it doesn't take away that before all the tough guy role he is playing now, he was a mini beast on the mic in the making so we just have to see how he approaches the situation, like a hip-hop head by showing love to the culture & make some good comeback music or a booshie dude that got all this money to use as an excuse to not care and just sellout to the pop fad.
